[audio]E100-72: Acts 3:1 - 4:37: The rejected stone - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Peter gets some powerful lines in these two great chapters :) Since I was a child Iâve loved his: "I donât have silver and gold, but what I do have Iâll give you. Get up and walk!" So different from what we usually hear⦠And then when faced by the authorities he talks about his Master as the "Stone the builders rejected" quoting Ps 118:22. This superb Psalm all through contrasts human power and "protection" with God's steadfast love that endures forever.....

[audio]E100-80: Acts 25:1 - 28:31: Ending in Rome? - Dr Tim Bulkeley
In the legal manouvreing at the start of this reading Paul quotes Isaiah: Listen and listen but not understand look and look but not see! But if the Bible is perspicuous (listen to The Perspicuity of Scripture) so is creation: we can't miss evidence of God, but sometimes we don't want to hear... And what a frustrating ending! How does Paul's story end? Luke presumably knew if Acts was written about AD 70 because these events had happened some 8 years earlier...

[audio]E100: Week 16: The Church breaks loose! - Dr Tim Bulkeley
This week's readings tell the exciting story of how the Church broke loose. Till this time faith and culture had been intimately related. So if you wanted to convert to Judaism you became Jewish and adopted the rules and customs of Jewish life. In particular you adopted the 613 rules of the Torah. The first two readings tell of Saul's conversion and (the now renamed) Paulâs first missionary journey and the conversion of Jews and Gentiles...

[audio]E100-79: Acts 16:1 - 20:38 More Missionary Journeys - Dr Tim Bulkeley
These five chapters describe Paul's second and third missionary journeys, amid many trips covering between them about a decade there are lots of exciting stories. The approach Paul took in Athens is of particular interest, it's a very early example of Christianity not merely translating but contextualising â expressing the message not only in the words but also the culture of another people. Paul use elements of Athenian culture - even their "unknown god" - despitebeing "deeply distressed to se...

[audio]E100-77: Acts 13:1 - 14:28: The First Missionary Journey - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Paul's summarises the Old Testament story from a Jewish-Christian perspective as a world looking for a saviour. Then John showed that still "today" not just in ancient times people are looking for a saviour. Jesus not only died, but rose, and this is the keeping of God's ancient promises. In Jesus God fills out, fully, the hopes and promises of the past. In Jesus, we are set free from sin - sin is not a trendy term today, but we still suffer from living in a world that is wrong...

[audio]E100: Week 15: The Spirit breaks loose! - Dr Tim Bulkeley
The last reading last week about the ascension of Jesus to heaven explained that soon the Spirit would come. The disciples might not know all the secrets of God (as religions forever claim to do), but they will experience and share God's power. Then in the first reading this week we move from the ascension to Pentecost, foreshadowing the spread of the gospel to everyone, each in their own language...

[audio]E100-76: Acts 9:1 - 9:31: The Road to Damascus - Dr Tim Bulkeley
"The Road" or "The Way" common Biblical picture language for a way of life or the direction we are "going", but it is also used several times in Acts (almost, or probably, only in Acts) as a name for being a Christian. It is a good name because metanoia, repentance, is about turning round and going a different way. Acts also is a book about journeys, with lots of individual voyages, and also the journey of the gospel from Jerusalem to Rome - from Jewish sect to global faith...

[audio]E100-74: Acts 8:26 - 8:40: Philip preaches Isaiah - Dr Tim Bulkeley
There are a couple of things to notice here: * firstly how Luke stresses the role of the Holy Spirit (or rather, God, since at the start it is "an angel of the Lord") * it may have been a desert/wilderness road but like Abraham in Gen 12 "he got up and went" our response to such promptings is often more cautious, even at times Jonah-like * the Ethiopian official was prepared (been to temple, so God-fearer, reading Scripture - measure of his importance he had a copy) * Isaiah again! Bible Jesus R...

[audio]E100-73: Acts 6:8 - 8:8: Stephen the witness - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Stephen is a âmartyrâ (in English that means someone who dies for their beliefs, but in Greek it means someone who bears witness to their faith). Stephen points to Jesus, and witnesses to truth â even at expense of speaking against âholyâ things. In his defense he retells the story of salvation Heilsgeschichte but focused on Israelite unbelief and presenting Jesus as fulfillment of old old story (Acts 7:35-37)...

[audio]E100-71: Acts 2:1-47: The Day of Pentecost July 26, 2010 tim No comments - Dr Tim Bulkeley
An unheard of miracle that foreshadows the spread of the gospel to all the world and the fellowship that transcends frontiers and cultures. Like in Joel everyone receives Godâs Spirit, young as well as old, women and men alike, slave and free, the Spirit bursts all human categories. Indeed death could not hold him down â Jesus lives in his people, the work continues! Is it now you'll begin to reign? Yes, but not in a tawdry political kingdom...

[audio]E100-70: Acts 1:1 - 11: The Ascension - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Luke begins his sequel to the gospel "In the first book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus did and taught from the beginningâ¦" but his summary ocuses on the resurrection and stresses that it was real. He then reports the risen Jesus telling the disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the Spirit, who he calls "the promise of the Father" then Jesus echoes the start of the gospel story in Luke 3: John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now...

[audio]E100: Week 14: Death and resurrection - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Gospels are not biographies, nor are they just collections of sayings, they focus on Jesus' death and resurrection. Without either event canât understand Jesus or the gospel. But we also to see and understand that Jesus is God incarnate and that Jesus is risen else his dearth and the disciples turnaround between end of gospels and Acts makes no sense. This week's readings bring to fruition the message we heard time and again in the Old Tedstament, that the only true God is Yahweh, the one who w...

In Matt 26 when Peter was supposed to be praying with Jesus he went to sleep, here a similar physical need interrupts his prayer, he's hungry (in Peterâs retelling says he fell asleep here too :) But God uses the two situations quite differently - here his hunger gives him a vision! When God says... ! OK God's message to Peter is quite clear, the behavioural rules that we think measure God's favour don't, the good news of God's love is for everyone...

[audio]E100-69: John 20:1 - 21:25: The Resurrection - Dr Tim Bulkeley
In this podcast I’ll introduce the idea of the ending of John as a sphragis, and very briefly mention what that might mean for reading John’s gospel, but most of the time will be spent on the much less technical question of why I am convinced that Jesus rose from death and met with the disciples - because after all this passage is about the resurrection, and not about the technical details (however fascinating to biblical scholars ;)
